3 What is Eureka!? Welcome to Eureka! IIT Bombay s Business Plan Competition. We appreciate your interest in participating in this year s event, organized by the Entrepreneurship Cell, IIT Bombay. Our Vision Innovation and enterprising are the wheels that steer the world into a brighter future. The world economy will tumble upon itself if new innovations are not reaped every day. Great ideas result into great undertakings which pave the way for glaring success. It is easier said than done because the process of realizing an idea needs a deep understanding of the world around, and an innate preparedness to cope with failures - an inevitable part of enterprising. In order to facilitate this vision of promoting entrepreneurship in India and the world, E-Cell organizes Eureka!, an international business plan competition. About Eureka! Eureka! provides a platform for potential ideas and early stage start-ups to evaluate their plan in the risk-free environment of a competition. It aims to bridge the gap between ideas and the realization of an enterprise. Eureka! has been independently recognized as Asia s largest Business Plan Competition by CNN and Thomson Reuters. Support from organizations like Mumbai Angels, the Indian Angel Network and TiE makes Eureka! a networking hub for entrepreneurs, mentors and investors. What makes us unique?
